One such weakness is high "rectilinear propagation" - or put simply, 5G mmWave travels in relatively straight lines. As a result, signals often cannot reach locations where a direct line of sight to the base station is obstructed, as in a crowded city or indoors.
To solve this problem, Kyocera's engineers developed an innovative "Transmissive Metasurface" technology to redirect wireless network signals in a specific direction. This new solution will help dramatically improve 5G service areas in addition to the conventional Reflective Metasurface technologies used to solve 5G's rectilinear propagation issues today.
